I have made milk soap before and this book is a great addition to my knowledge. Perhaps in future you could add a few info and we would get a free updated version. I would be wonderful to have bigger photos as some of it are quite small and could not see the details..
I really like this book, however I think there may be some typos? Not sure, but I followed Anne Maries instructions on freezing the milk and mixing the lye with its little by little. Their are things the book is not clear about, like when I did that, the mixture of lye and goats milk ice cubes became like custard. Is that supposed to happen? And then it says to put it in the freezer. I did that....is it put it in for the whole 24 hours? well I did that. It was beautiful when I got it out, but a few hours later I took it out and cut it and put it up to dry out. When I looked at it the next day, it was sweating carmel colored drops. I tried to wipe them off and it stung my hands. I threw the whole batch out. So I tried the 50/50 method. Which worked other than the soap still gelled in the center. I put it in freezer for 30 min and then fridge. Some of the instructions need to be very specific. As we buy this to know all the details so it will be successful.
